    Canadian eh? I'd say that your item has been selected for inspection by the Border Services Agency (BSA). They may open it to confirm that the contents match the description and value on the shipping label. They'll also calculate the duty and GST owed. They'll relabel your package and send it on as a collect package, so you'll need to pay the balance at the time of receipt to your mailman or courier.

    Singaporean, I doubt it's due to the GST owed. It's barred here, so I'm looking for the Singaporeans who've experienced similar situation as me whether it'll be a fine or a warning or something worser..

    You live in a country where people do their jobs meticulously, and authorities don't give lawbreakers the benefit of the doubt. They've made possession a crime. How dumb do you have to be to talk about it on a public forum? Seek out a black market and stop leaving breadcrumbs.
